Ah, this obsession with high end make up is so bad right now! Honestly, I apologise 1) to my readers whom I enable daily and 2) my bank balance for denting it at every turn.
I’ll justify these Tom Ford Lipstick purchases by stating that I did buy them for a discounted £7.00 off each. That does bring the price down to £30.00 per lipstick. Yelp! I purchased these as a pre-holiday treat and I certainly can’t justify buying a new one every month. However, that being said, I do love Summer Fling and I’ve used that loads so I knew it was inevitable that I’d be adding to my collection.
After much swatching at Duty Free, I managed to come away with two new red shades, one slightly pinker toned and one more on the orange side of life. Just needed to put that out there to confirm that I definitely bought two completely erm…different shades. The packaging is extremely alluring so that definitely pushed me to buy.
So I picked up the Tom Ford Lip Color in Cherry Lush which is a pink toned red that I wore on Christmas Day. It’s a vibrant, slightly glossy colour that really makes my teeth look several shades whiter than they are. It’s really good at giving my lips a much fuller, plumper look too which I won’t be complaining about that’s for sure. I find this to be pretty long lasting considering it’s not a matte finish and it’s very comfortable on the lips.
The second lipstick was one of the Lip Color Matte‘s in Flame, which I chose because I am loving matte red lips this winter. Literally, who am I? It’s orange toned which I find really suits my skin tone. It’s a little bit like MAC Lady Danger but with a much more “lit from within” radiant feel. This is very opaque on the lips and even has a bit of slip for a more comfortable wear.
I am super happy with these purchases because they definitely did not disappoint. They feel comfortable, luxurious and long lasting on the lips. I would recommend them for a special gift or treat without a doubt.
What’s your most luxurious lip product?
Love, Kate xo
